FAIRFIELD — Public Works will buy a 4X2 SUV costing $24,768 to inspect job sites if the City Council agrees to replace the 2003 Crown Victoria now used.
The city sought bids and three vendors responded with Ford Lincoln Fairfield providing the low bid.
Kevin Berryhill, assistant public works director, said the 4×2 costs less than a 4X4. The new vehicle will increase efficiency by reducing the need to borrow vehicles with higher ground clearance, a staff report to the council states.
City Council members meet at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the council chamber at 1000 Webster St.
